“Sometimes, on our way through the world, we meet someone who touches our heart in a way others don't.”
Philip Reeve

“You aren't a hero and I'm not beautiful and we probably won't live happily ever after " she said. "But we're alive and together and we're going to be all right.”
Philip Reeve, Mortal Engines

Philip Reeve, Fever Crumb
